Reports filtering across the pond of a stabbing on Bowring Road. 2 to Nobles.

Good to see local media all over it ....

I noticed at 2pm today on Bowring Road, just past the Jurby Road junction at the bus stop, the road was closed with patrol cars and a couple of fully geared up Scenes of Crimes officers in attendance.

Some spokesperson for the police will probably issue a statement at some point, give very few details, remind people the Isle of Man is a safe place to live and ask people not to speculate on social media.

Local media don’t work today, tomorrow or Monday as it’s Bank Holiday. Some are civil servants..

And in a couple of months they'll be appealing for witnesses.

This is interesting. I think an awful lot of people on the island were aware of this already but just chose not to post it on Manx Forums.

Is Facebook any different than Manx Forums in this respect?

Looks like that post was made on public settings on Facebook so if several billion people in the world can see it perhaps posting it on an open forum makes little difference really.

Speculation? What, that the media were all over it? 

 

Where is the speculation in what I’d reported? It actually seems a lot more serious than what had been relayed to me from a reliable (non police) source.

For whatever reason the media are keeping well away from this one, despite the fact that it was public knowledge very shortly after it kicked off.
